life

UPDATED AUGUST 6, 2016~~~~~~~~~~ I've moved to a lonely little house out in the country, in a place called White Heath, Illinois. Message me if you want my address. Not swapping much these days.

I have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Depression as a result of finding my father after he shot himself May 11, 2012. I am currently taking Prozac and Ambien (for the nightmares I have)and Xanax for anxiety. I have moments of panic at certain sounds or sights and start sweating and shaking all over. My psychiatrist says it could be years before the symptoms go away. I'm sharing this because it could affect my ability to swap.

I would like to ask that you PLEASE DO NOT send me anything with images of guns or blood or death on it until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

I got to be on the Swap-bot blog on Feb. 25th, 2010! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

if I am fancy free and I love to wander, it's just the gypsy in my soul...

...I'm a gypsy... are you coming with me?

Favorite Crafts

ATCs!

I would like to ask that you PLEASE DO NOT send me anything with images of guns or blood or death on it until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

I store my ATCs in binders with 9 pocket pages, so please keep this in mind when making cards for me. I like to keep all my cards stored safely, but if they are really embellished, or have things hanging off the sides, then I am unable to store them properly. Thanks for your consideration. APCs, candlemaking, crocheting, counted cross-stitch, drawing, embroidery, needlepoint, origami (a little), painting, sewing, soap making, miniatures and dollhouses.

JUST A NOTE ABOUT SMOKING ISSUES: I don't smoke, so if you are a smoker, please drop me a pm before you send so that I can be sure to air the item well before bringing it into the house. Thanks for your co-operation! :)

I would like to ask that you PLEASE DO NOT send me anything with images of guns or blood or death on it until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

About Me

I have 4 cats and one very old deaf and going blind dog. I have a grown son and daughter. And on February 6th, 2016, I became Granny Gypsy to a beautiful grandson named Jesse.

I would like to ask that you PLEASE DO NOT send me anything with images of guns or blood or death on it until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

Religion

My family should have known all along...

Me at age 4.

I am an ordained Wiccan minister. I have been a Wiccan (pagan) since 1983..

I also believe that Jesus Christ was a real man who believed that it was his duty to protect humankind from evil.

I am not a Christian.

I am not a satanist.

I do follow teachings of the Buddha, as well as many Native American shamans.

I am a Wiccabuddhist EcoChristopagan with Shamanic tendencies.

I believe that we should all respect one another's differences, as well as respect one another.

I believe that we should love one another, and help one another as we are able.

Foodie and allergies

ALLERGIES

  • ginger

  • wool

  • angora

  • jute twine

  • ecchanacia

JUST A NOTE ABOUT SMOKING ISSUES: I am not a smoker, so if you are a smoker, please drop me a pm before you send so that I can be sure to air the item well before bringing it into the house. Thanks for your co-operation! :)

this is one of my favourite teapots I own

I drink tea (any flavour BUT peach, ginger or pomegranate) and coffee.

I love all things cherry, cherry scented and cherry flavoured. Lavender too. :)

I'm as close to being a vegetarian as you can get without actually being one.

Dust catchers & Extras

WISHLIST (of sorts)

About Me


THIS is a handy paper size chart.

My hands and feet are always cold.

I like to talk.

I'm a total Anglophile.

I like to talk a lot! :)

I'm not shy, so ask me anything! (but I do reserve the right to tell you it's none of your beeswax!) =^_^=

I DON'T DO DRAMA!

Just because I disagree with you, doesn't mean that I don't like you.

It only means that I disagree with you. My personal opinions are just that, MY personal opinions. And you know what they say about opinions... * Opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one

I would like to ask that you PLEASE DO NOT send me anything with images of guns or blood or death on it until further notice. Thank you for understanding.

May the Goddess tickle your toes with the Earth's energy May Ganesha remove the obstacles in your path May Kwan Yin touch your heart with compassion May Kali light the fire within to destroy the evils in your life May Jesus feed your mouth and your soul May God touch the top of your head and light your very way May the Buddha live within

namaste to all my Swap-bot friends.
